Since she’s just had a new showreel cut, it’s a good time to introduce our leading lady on UNF. Elspeth Turner is a Scottish actor and performer, who trained and worked in New York City. She has an extensive background in theatre, and we’re honoured to have her lead our cast.
Here’s her reel, cut by the talented Chris Cook, and scored by a brilliant track from Mairi Campbell and Dave Gray.
And there’s some footage from UNF…
MOVING PICTURES
September saw us filming with the marvellous David Whitney, who joined our set to play psychiatrist Dr Lloyd.
Also welcomed on set were A/C Steven Cook and sound man Paul Hartmann.
We shot at Henry’s Cellar Bar, the famous Edinburgh music venue.
Here’s some images, photographed by the amazing Thomas Morgan.
In February we were shooting the latest segment of UNF.
4 days in a flat on Leith Walk. 3 actors, 7 crew.
Here’s a couple of images from the shoot, snapped by the ultra-talented Thomas Morgan.

£4,023 was raised which enables us to complete the shooting of our new feature.
The support has been amazing. Messages of encouragement have been coming in for the last 35 days. This week we’ll be busy sending out rewards to the people who contributed.
It’s been a rewarding, happy campaign – a great chance to explain to people the film we’re making & why. Now, we’re planning the next stage of the shooting in January. Much work to do.
THANK YOU PEOPLE !!
Love, light, peace X

 

Hallo!
Shooting has begun on our new feature – a road movie love story. JACOB adjusts to his new life in the city. EVA is the secret daughter of Ingmar Bergman. They collide into each others’ world.
Whilst telling an entertaining story, this film aims to celebrate the hope, humour & inspiration of people with schizophrenia, and shed some light on this psychiatric disorder.
For 3 years I’ve been conducting research, and examining the responsibilities that lie with filmmakers. Advice & thoughts of Professor Stephen Lawrie have been invaluable.
“The arts, and film in particular, have a role in reducing the stigmatization of mental illness, and they provide opportunities to hear stories about mental illness in a way that corrects the myths and stereotypes people have about these conditions.”
Professor Stephen Lawrie, Head of Psychiatry, University of Edinburgh
